HARLEY QUINNINJA? The Batman Ninja Trailer Debuts

When Grant Morrison handled the return of Bruce Wayne, he reimagined ol' BW as various Bat-pop culture genres - pirate Batman, caveman Batman, cowboy Batman - it was wicked. One that was noticeably missing? Ninja Batman.

Now an all-star line-up of anime creators looks set to fill the void, with this trailer for Batman Ninja. Japanese trailer first, English trailer second - watch each for their exclusive footage!



That Two-Face looks amazing! Nightwing, Penguin, Harley Quinn and the other lads and lasses of Gotham City get thrown into feudal Japan, after an unexpected chemical reaction turns the Clown Prince of Crime into the Devil King of the 6th Heaven, Lord Joker.

Giant robots, Gorilla Grodd(?), and a Bat-vehicle free Batman has my mind spinning who else may be in future trailers - Scarecrow, Bane, Huntress, Black Canary - the potential for this 2018 release is already HUGE.

 What do you think?

  1. I saw this too, yesterday. Fuck I can't wait to see this, hopefully it's in English. If not, fuck it, I'll read the subtitles.

    1. Hopefully it inspires more of these kind of Elseworld-ish features. New takes like one where Krypton didn't explode but became the new fire pit covered Apokolips and Kal grew up in the resistance would be cool

  2. I'll have to see this one on HBO. You guys aren't scared Ninja Batman is going to show up in the next Justice League movie? You probably should be, cause the real Batman hasn't showed up yet.

    1. Ninja Batman is welcome anywhere Omega. As are all ninjas, predators and robocops. Its odd you've mentioned that though, lately my brain keeps flipping onto who is my favourite live-action Batman and trying to figure it out. At the moment, mine is Keaton I think. Those Burton movies really haven't dated.
